Everything'scoming to a end with the swansong from Iowa City's Raccoo-oo-oon. Following up last years critically acclaimed Behold Secret Kingdom(RTB/Not Not Fun), the final album takes everything up a notch andshows a band taking their last breath and laying down the last bricksin their fairly short history. More reminiscent of the freeform punkmadness of The Cave Of Spirits Forever (Time Lag) than the heavyoutbursts from Behold Secret Kingdom, this album reeks of desperationand a feeling of going down with nothing to loose at all. A fucked upfuture-prog mayhem that is all over the place and at no known place atall at the same time. Minds are melting, new grounds are covered andthings will never be the same. When the last track fades out andeverything is over, the silence has never been so quiet before.Genuinely uncomfortable, desperate and just beautiful, this album willsurely be remembered as the most important recording that Racco-oo-oonever put to tape. A playtime of close to 75 minutes over 7 tracks. Be sure to check out the bandmembers new projects (Wet Hair, Pukers etc). One-time pressing of 1000 copies in a full colour Dual Plover styled gatefold sleeve with the disc laying on a black felt.

Also available: RACCOO-OO-OON (7"), RACCOO-OO-OON (2LP) (LP).
